Restylane is a synthetic stabilized hyaluronic acid (non-animal based) that is FDA approved for soft tissue augmentation. It is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores both volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as smile lines.
Average Restylane treatment results last six months or even longer with individual results varying. Evidence shows that having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect. Dr. Cohen may discuss the use of a local anesthetic injection prior to your treatment with Restylane.
